Many campus activities are generated by students and arise out of academic work or personal interests. The Office of Student Activities helps to implement student-sponsored projects and events by providing funding assistance and logistical support. Programs are designed and planned by the Sarah Lawrence Activities Council (SLAC), student organizations including the Student Senate or the Student Activities staff in collaboration with and at the request of individuals or groups of students. All students are encouraged to suggest activities.
Sarah Lawrence College has quite possibly one of the most interesting arrangements for housing of any college campus. Former private houses, sprawling real-life apartment buildings with actual tenants, cooperative houses, a converted carriage house, traditional suite-style dormitories, contemporary community-focused dorms and even a converted section of the President's house offer students a living situation comparable to their educational experience: unique, to say the least.
The Office of Diversity and Campus Engagement works with its programming and funding arm the Diversity and Activism Programming Subcommittee of Student Life (DAPS) to provide student centered programs that focus all aspects of diversity. In order to make campus climate changes, it is important to think about diversity efforts as sustainable.
The Office of Career Counseling is dedicated to guiding Sarah Lawrence undergraduates, graduates, and alumnae/i on their respective career paths. No matter where you are on this journey, we are here to help. We offer a wide range of career services including career counseling, workshops, information sessions, and employer site visits, just to name a few. Feel free to explore our website, and please come in for a visit.
Sarah Lawrence College has a rich history of educating students for social responsibility, and a deep commitment to the integration of community-based learning. Through community work, students deepen insights into their academic inquiry, develop relationships with role models working to better society, learn skills for community organizing, social service, and citizenship, and clarify personal career goals and values.
